EMI-Filtered PDU With Advanced Transient Surge Protection

CleanSweep® AC EMI filtered power distribution units (PDU) provide both advanced two-stage surge protection and highly-effective EMI filtering. 

"I would just like to tell you that everything went fine with the PDU, and that we’re very satisfied with both the product and your support."  (Norway) 

Did you know that regular MOV-based surge protectors allow up to 700V spikes to get to your equipment? It is all in their specification. CleanSweep® PDUs uniquely reduce hundreds of volts transients down to just few harmless volts - see details below.  CleanSweep® PDUs combine proprietary suppression technology with regular MOVs providing comprehensive transient surge protection for your sensitive equipment.  

Power line transients is not the only power problem affecting your equipment. Strong EMI common in any industrial environment causes multitude of malfunction, equipment lock-ups and errors (some of them appear as software glitches).  CleanSweep® PDUs employ our unique patented filter technology to provide unparalleled reduction of EMI improving your up-time and reducing defects.  See below for details.

AR-series PDU is supplied with a power cable with options for different locales. Note that while the maximum capacity of this PDU is 20A, the ultimate max. current rating will depend on the lowest of these 20A and the circuit breaker of the branch of the outlet into which this PDU is plugged in.  Fox example, for cable with Schuko plug the max. current will be 16A. 

Display of AR-series PDU provides detailed information on voltage, current, power consumption of all loads and consumed energy helping you to manage your energy bill and determine power requirements


Did you know that most regular EMI filters are effective only in the test lab but may amplify EMI in actual installations? Yes, it is in their specification.  Real-life installations have long cables, multitude of EMI sources, "dirty" ground and power line impedances that have nothing to do with the "sterile" 50 Ohms found in the test labs. 

OnFILTER' CleanSweep® AC power line EMI filters and PDUs are designed to be very effective in actual installations (they do well in the test lab too).

CleanSweep® filtered PDUs offer two-stage advanced transient surge protection unachievable just by regular MOVs that allows spikes up to 700V to get to your equipment.  After first stage with MOVs, our built-in CleanSweep® filtering that is treating transients as EMI, reduces them to harmless levels of just a few volts.  .

What is EMI?  A formal definition of Electromagnetic Interference is that it is a malfunction of equipment caused by excessive high-frequency signals, either radiated (via air), or conducted (via wires).  Often it is also called RFI - Radio Frequency Interference.  Most conventionally, EMI is understood as undesirable high-frequency signals, and EMI filters as devices that suppress such signals while preserving the "good" ones.
